Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp (1oz/30g) butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp beaten egg (crack the egg, beat it, and measure 2 tbsps)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350oF (180oC)
  2. In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar together until creamed.
  3. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  4. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, and sprinkles until just combined. Do NOT overmix. You will notice this is a soft dough
  5. Place the dough in the center of the prepared cookie sheet into a tall ball (3 inches wide).
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes until the edges are browned. The center may appear undone but that's what you want. It will firm up. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet. Enjoy!
  7. *To get 1 Tbsp egg, crack egg into a small bowl, whisk until yolk and white are well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp.
